Summerville, the largest city in Dorchester County, is located in southeastern South Carolina on I-26 just north of Charleston. Known as “The Flower Town in the Pines,” Summerville has a profusion of public and private gardens and is especially beautiful in the spring when the azaleas bloom. Here is a map of the Summerville area.
The first settlement in Summerville began following the American Revolutionary War; it was referred to as Pineland Village in 1785. Development in the area resulted from plantation owners who resided in the Charleston area, and who came to Summerville to escape seasonal insects and swamp fever.
Summerville became an official town in 1847. In that year, the town passed a law against cutting down trees of particular sizes, the first of such laws in the United States, and a $25 fine was issued upon any who did so without permission. Today, the motto upon the town’s official seal reads “Sacra Pinus Esto (The Pine is Sacred).” 
In 1899, the International Congress of Physicians (or “Tuberculosis Congress”) listed Summerville to be one of the two best areas in the world for treatment and recovery of lung and throat disorders. It received such notation due to its dry and sandy location, and the many pine trees in the area that release turpentinederivatives into the air. This notation is credited with aiding the commercial and residential development of Summerville.
The Ashley River Road, Middleton Place, Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site, Old White Meeting House Ruins and Cemetery, and the Summerville Historic District are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
